Indeed. It is often hard to predict how a certain board ill feel. Regarding the iS86, you should try it in some tough windy conditions too. Then you will really appreciate the low volume design. And actually, I think it handles high wind just as good as the iS76. The difference is more that that the 76 is a bit "softer" in the ride quality and has even better jibing - better than a freeride board, I would say. So overall the 86 has a phenomenal range, which is also reflected in the fact that both heavier and lighter sailors in the PWA use it.
